1.03pmWe're almost heading straight into the action here as the players wait to enter the court.
1.06pmJamie Hampton is first out and she gets a great reception. It's worth saying that this is the American world number 41's first ever WTA final so the nerves are sure to be playing their part right now. Next out is Russian world number 36 Vesnina - this is her eighth WTA final.
1.10pmWEATHER UPDATE: There's a heck of a breeze going around Eastbourne at the moment but the good news is that it's clear and there are also some patches of blue sky.
1.14pmHere we go then, it'll be Vesnina to serve...
1.18pmVESNINA 1-0* HAMPTON (* denotes next server)
1.19pmVesnina gets off to a solid start with a hold. There were some great exchanges during that opening game as Hampton fought back from 0-30 to 30-30, but she eventually hits long to give her Russian opponent the first game.
1.23pmIt's a competitive game again from the two women but Hampton takes it when Vesnina whips a forehand wide. The wind is likely to play a big part in today's final as it continues to lash wildly around the court.
1.43pmA double fault from Hampton brings up a break point for Vesnina and the Russian converts when they American plants a backhand into the net while on the stretch. Vesnina really put her opponent under pressure there and it paid off.
1.48pmThis one is turning out to be a very hard-fought game. Hampton has squandered a couple of break points but we're back to deuce.
1.52pmSame again as Hampton gives herself the chance of a break point before slicing a backhand into the net. We're approaching the 10-minute mark for this game.
1.55pmHampton hits wide and Vesnina has what could be a vital game in this first set. Despite the wind, there were some sumptuous rallies between the pair but the Russian comes out on topand moves within one game of winning this set.
1.58pmHampton hits a forehand into the net and Vesnina has the set 6-2. The Russian has simply been more consistent so far and edges closer to the title.
2pmThe players have a quick breather and it will be Vesnina to start this second set.
2.02pmOf course, Hampton came back from a set down against Wozniacki yesterday so it's nothing new to her at this tournament. However, she needs to cut out the errors in this set if she is to get herself back in the match.
2.05pmVesnina rather cruelly gets a time violation on her way to holding the opening game of the second set. The wind is continually to cause problems for the players, including on their serves, but the umpire put her foot down on that occasion. Nevertheless, the Russian is off the mark.
2.11pmThis game is turning out to be a real scrap. Plenty of errors from both players.
2.14pmHampton hits the net again and Vesnina has the break to move into a 2-0 lead in this second set. That really was an ugly game from both players, not helped by the wind that continues to howl around the court. Not that the Russian will mind.
2.29pmBIG hold for Vesnina as Hampton whacks a backhand into the net. That game ebbed and flowed before the Russian clinched it. A subtle fistpump suggests she knows the title is within her grasp. Hampton won't give up though.
2.33pmAnd that looks to be that. Vesnina breaks with ease and will now serve for the second WTA singles title of her career.
2.34pmGAME, SET AND MATCH! VESNINA 6-2 6-1 HAMPTON
2.36pmHampton finds the net and Vesnina wins the Aegon International with a comfortable 6-2 6-1 triumph. The Russian dealt with the conditions better today and simply showed more consistency than her opponent.
2.37pmThe wind made it a nightmare for both players today, but Vesnina remained calm and deservedly takes the title. It's the second of her career after coming out on top in Hobart in January.
2.39pmJamie Hampton is getting plenty of plaudits from the fans and rightly so. She's entertained during the past week and, what with all of her injury problems, it was great to see her competing in her first WTA final.
2.40pmAnyway, that's all from me for now. However, we will shortly have a live commentary up and running for today's men's final as Gilles Simon takes on Feliciano Lopez. Stay tuned.
